Sew them together to become the size you want, I chose 8x8".
[press(iron) the seams as you go, its worth it!]
1-backing with right side facing down, [white with leaves]
2-insulating fabric [8x8" in the middle]
3-the fabric square you created with right side facing up [elephant!]
On top of these I did a fun squiggly stitch in contrasting thread, to attach all the layers. You can do what ever you want. [circles, squares, straight lines etc]
Cut the bottom layer and leave a 1 to 1 1/2" border around the outside.
This will be used as sort of a 'faux' bias tape.
Fold in half twice and iron. [if this is confusing look at the pics below]
Next do a quick 'stay put' stitch for each of the corners. This is not necessary but does make it a little easier for the next step.
Sew around the edge, and you are done!!
If you want to put a loop in there you can... sew a little tube, fold in half, and stitch it into one of the corners.
